I opened up the rest of my presents late Christmas evening - thank you Reesa (I love the song "Sisters"), Mat (pity anybody listening while I sing on the freeway), and Tammy (Charmed! yay!).
Kev - thank you - I wore the earrings along with the necklace on Christmas and have already read the Grimoire. =)
Almost forgot - Christmas Eve, we had j-food for dinner. Kyle is currently hooked on negihama (yellowtail tuna & green onion sushi). After dinner, K & I took the kids up to Christmas Tree Lane and ooh'd and aah'd over all the sparkley lights and decorations. Alani kept pointing and saying "Look! Look!"
